The most hipster hotels in London

Introducing Victoria’s Insider Guide to London

Oh my, I’m excited to finally share the video project we’ve been working on for the past few months. It’s a series for Expedia called Victoria’s Insider Guide to London, and is essentially what it says on the tin. Each month we’ll release a new episode with tips around a specific theme, starting with ‘How … Read more

Handpicked City Guide: 3 Days in London

There’s a lot more to London than all the major tourist sights, and you’ll find that many Londoners have never even been to many of the “must sees”. When something’s on your doorstep, it’s easy to leave it for “another day”. But we are spoilt in this city for history, galleries and culture, and if … Read more

Introducing London: a walk along the South Bank

London is the city I’ve called home for the past 13 years, and before that I only lived a 30-minute train ride away. Over the next few months, I’ll be sharing lots of insider advice for the city, but to start my London tips, I thought I’d begin with the classics, all the top attractions … Read more

Europe Road Trip - Santa Margherita Ligure

My London

I moved here at 19, exhilarated and starry eyed after a year travelling the world by myself. While friends headed out across the width and breadth of England, for me it had always been London. I grew up just a 30-minute train ride from the city in a suburban Surrey town. We’d save our money … Read more

Best cafes in Peckham, London

Peckham has all the ingredients for a hipster heaven – men with beards, its own craft brewery, artisanal delis and, of course, a lot of coffee. I mostly work from home and I don’t have an office so I’ve become somewhat of a connoisseur of the local cafes. Luckily for me, there are plenty to choose … Read more

Peckham Rye Station, London

There’s no place like home.

Tonight I’ll see six friends. We’ll eat at a pop-up Syrian restaurant then head to our local that shares my name. Friends and a local pub. We’re home again. We’ve seen a lot of friends and family these past few weeks – friends from school, friends from uni, cousins, the type of friends you keep … Read more

London in the rain

Coming up for breath

The pace of a city shapes it. Rio rotates to the rhythms of samba, Rome struts, and Sydney saunters. This week I returned to London, a city that races through its days. Any visitor who has ever been here and made the mistake of standing on the left of an escalator will have experienced the … Read more

Year two on the road in photos

“How long are you off for?” “Maybe 2-5 years, who knows?” said Steve 730 days ago at our party to say goodbye. It was an answer said half-jokingly. We had no idea what this journey would look like or how long it would last for. We still don’t know where it’s going, but we do … Read more

Eguisheim, France – Real-life fairytale village

Things I missed and miss

Today we made a decision. After our time in Ubud, we have two months until we need to be Barcelona where Steve will finish the very final stages of Continuum. The big question on our minds has been where to spend those two months. It has to be Europe so Steve can get to Barcelona if … Read more
